Tonight I have been working on restoring these RADA 6.5x9cm Plate Holders.

Tomorrow I will contact cement the trappings into the holders, and they will be ready to load with dry plates. And I need to develop my first set of 6.5x9cm test exposures. Will be posting them soon. Having a decent amount of usuable holders is really important to me.

Also I am ordering two boxes of the ASA 25 "Speed Plates" in 6.5x9cm for testing.

Where could do you get in the web those strips of mohair? Because I've difficulties finding the proper light trap for "bald" plate camera backs & holders.
